Phone problems being addressed

Information Technology Division said it is working to solve problems in the telephone lines that have produced difficulties for people off-campus dialing in or for those trying to reach the University's modem pool.

Incoming calls to campus have been steadily increasing for years, but a sudden spike in those calls has resulted in some callers getting a "We're sorry, all circuits are busy now" message. Modem pool sessions have increased by 40 percent since October, and though ITD said Emory has the most modems per capita of any campus in the country, not all of those modems have been operational recently, a problem the division said has been fixed. Finally, BellSouth has also experienced difficulties that have affected Emory's phone service.

In the short term, ITD has ordered equipment that by April 1 will increase Emory's capacity to handle incoming calls. The division is also reviewing its procedures and diagnostic activities to find other solutions.

ITD asks that the Emory community:

  • voluntarily limit the length of modem pool sessions during the peak hours from 8 p.m. to 11 p.m.
  • report phone call intercepts to Telecommunica-tions' phone repair at 404-727-6161.
  • report modem call intercepts to the ITD customer support center at 404-727-7777 with your name, date, time the intercept was reached, what the intercept message said and the phone number from which the call originated.
